Top Alterations related questions

What are some common types of clothing alterations services?

It’s common to book clothing alterations for formal wear and special events. But many people also get their corporate wear or school uniforms altered so they fit well and create a professional impression.

What are the benefits of getting clothing altered or repaired?

Clothing alterations can help transform an average garment into your most flattering piece when it’s properly tailored to your body shape. And clothing repairs can help extend the life of your favourite clothing, saving you time and money you’d otherwise spend shopping for new items - plus, it’s better for the environment.

What’s the best way to prepare for clothing alterations?

Come to your clothing alterations appointment prepared with your garment(s) and notes on any changes you want made. If you’re having a fitting, bring or wear the shoes and undergarments you plan to wear with the outfit.

How do I find the best clothing alteration services near me?

The best way to know if you’ve found a skilled clothing alteration service near you is to check the reviews. Airtasker makes this so easy with a transparent reviews and ratings system so you know you’re only hiring the best.

How long does clothing alteration usually take?

Minor clothing alterations and repairs can take as little as an hour or two, but full dressmaking services for a detailed garment like a wedding dress may take up to 6 months. 

How much does clothing alteration cost?

Clothing alterations usually cost between $40-$140 on Airtasker. The cost of your clothing alteration service will depend on the type of garment, whether you need a repair or full custom dressmaking, the level of complexity involved, and how long it’s likely to take.

What does a clothing alteration include?

Your seamstress or tailor is skilled in working with textiles, but especially clothing, to create, repair, and alter clothing. Here are some of the most popular clothing alteration services and what you can expect when you book them:


Need some custom sewing work to create a design from scratch, or custom-fit to your size? Hire a seamstress or dressmaker to create or customise your dress or garment. They’ll start by measuring your shape and size with a soft tape measure to ensure the perfect fit. They’ll consult with you on designs and fabrics, before choosing or customising a pattern and cutting out the pieces. They’ll sew your garment or dress, taking care to finish off any edges with an overlocking stitch. Most dressmakers will request you to come in for a final fitting where you can try on the (mostly finished) garment and they can make final adjustments.

Formal wear alterations

When you want to look your best, it’s so important that your clothing is tailored to perfectly fit. Whether you need bridal alterations, school graduation alterations, corporate wear alterations, or suit alterations, a professional seamstress can help. They’ll take your exact measurements and then ask you to try on the outfit or dress, ideally with the shoes you plan to wear. Then they’ll note or mark up any parts that need taking in or loosening, and where the hem needs to sit based on your shoe height. They’ll use a mixture of machine and hand-sewing techniques to alter your clothing and finalise everything with a final fitting before your event.

Clothing adjustments

Most clothing you buy off the rack won’t be the perfect fit, or you might need your favourite clothes adjusted as your body changes shape over time. Book clothing alterations near you to help with dress shortening, garment shortening, and even school uniform alterations for those kids who won’t stop growing. Clothing adjustments usually involve taking seams in or out, and adjusting the hem. Most hems have a few centimetres of extra fabric, so you can add extra length, or take it up for the perfect fit.

Clothing repairs

When your favourite dress or pants break, you don’t have to throw them away. Get a professional to take a look and see if they can save your garment with techniques like zipper repair, seam repair, new lining, hole patching, button sewing, and more. Extend the life of your clothing - it’s better for the environment and much more budget-friendly, too.

Sew 2 badges on leather motorcycle vest


Strathpine QLD, Australia

21st Nov 2019

I require someone around the Strathpine Area to sew 2 new cloth badges onto a motorcycle vest, and finish sewing one semi-attached badge (the coloured flames). The flames are attached only along the straight bottom edge. The vest is real leather so you will need a leather needle in order to do this job. I would like to have this completed before Friday evening. P.S. Before anyone suggests other options, I went to Mister Minute at the local shopping centre, but he had too much work and did not want to do it!
